Does anyone have advice for a nurse looking to leave bedside nursing?

You need experience in OR, Apheresis, and Case management... nowadays, without experience...unless you’re “in-house”applicant, you won’t get picked..

I am in the same situation.

Come to the OR!

Case management worked well for me. It allows you to use your clinical experience in a new way. And you’ll learn a lot about many more diagnoses. As well as treatment in many settings.

There are many areas of nursing besides "bedside nursing". Think back to when you were in nursing school what areas did you like when you took your clinicals? Look at the nursing jobs being offered and see if any interest you, with the nursing shortage now would be a good time to make a change.

Be careful, I have had 2 Staff Development/Infection Preventionist positions (in title only) Reality was I was those plus Stand, plus Floor nurse, wasn't supposed to work 24 +hours straight in a ltc facility where there is NOT any active covid among staff and residents. Ask to "shadow" before you take the job, see for yourself, feel the energy if the facility.

Have you considered how to use your experience to consult other nurses? Like mentoring or putting together a program to help them get hired or gain experience in a certain unit? Working for yourself is bomb!

Ambulatory setting. I work in Apheresis and love what I do!

Patient/Nurse relationship is the ultimate in bedside nursing so fascinating that the nurse will get clinical routine experience daily and more treatment in medical settings.
